    Depends what plane you are on. If a 747 you wont get all the films. If the new airbus you'll get everything.

    Not all 747 s are refurb'd yet, i think only four of the fleet have so still a chance to get the old entertainment system :-(

    We fly nov 1st and im hooing for a new 747 too

    Is there a way of finding out whether I am on an airbus or old or new 747?

    I want to have a look at what I might be watching next Saturday!

    Thanks

    Tis true. We had a non-refurbed 747 on the way home. I only watched one film because I didn't like the others. :sad1: (I was looking forward to watching the Avengers again but they didn't have it lol)

    Fingers crossed you get updated entertainment system.

    What's the difference between the entertainment system on the airbus and the 747? Virgin website says our flight out will be airbus and considering I get motion sickness I need something to take my mind off of it lol so hoping we have something decent

    I've just checked on my Virgin booking and we'reon a 747 on the way there and an airbus a330 on the way home. How will I find out if it's a refurbished plane? Do I have to wait until I get to the airport or is there a way to identify it when checking in online?

    I would have preferred the airbus on the way there and the 747 on the way home. I dont tend to watch the entertainment on the way home. I just sulk.

    Thanks Andrea

    If the 747 is a refurb then there is no difference ( 5 refurbs now complete) , if its not a refurb then the 747 does not have on demand IFE
